This wonderfully clever little satirical poein
upon the fashions and extravagance of New-
York female aristocracy, appeared lirst in liar- i
per's Weekly Journal, ami so complete a hit !
did it prove that over
ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND
copies vere sold, and new editions are being

will meet with the approval of everyone: and

dent that no tast*. however fastidious, will
remain unsatisfied.
From the Boston Courier and Providence
Journal.
"Nothing of the kind that we know of lias
ever been produced in America, within a long
way of the excellence ol' these wood engrav
ings. The third and fourth in order, in both
of which the heroine of the tale is more prom
inently introduced, show that this Artist is not
second to John Leech in tiie dcliueation of the
most luxurious type of female beauty. The
nonchalant expression of face, where Miss Flora
is interrupted at the glass, has never been
surpassed even in Punch. The last design
in which the highest insolence of wealth, lux
ury and fashion, is brought to the bedside of
an emaciated dying wretch, writhing in a gar
ret, with the rude rafter, the mice and cobwebs
in the back ground—shows a power of pencil,
which wc are happy to see exists on this side
of the Atlantic."
From the A*. Y. Evening Pott.
"The clever satirical poem of • Nothing to
Wear,' which has been so universally read and
admired—which has done and is doiug so
much good—has had the beuefit of a kindred
art to swell its attractions."

the disease originated, however long standing
or obstinate the case, recovery is certain, and in
a shorter time than a permanent cure can be ef
fected by any other treatment, even after the
disease lias battled the skill of eminent phvsi
cians and resisted all their means of cure. The
medicines are pleasant without odor, causing no
sickness and free from mercury or balsam.
During twenty years of practice. I have rescued
from llic jn.ws of Death many thousands, who,
in the last stages of the above mentioned dis
eases had been given up to die by their physi
cians, which warrants me in promising to the
afflicted, who may place themselves under in\
care, a perfect and most speedy cure. Secret
Diseases are the greatest enemies to health, as
they are the lirst cause of Consumption, Scrof
ula. and many other diseases, and should be a
terror to the human family. As a permanent
cure is scarcely ever effected, a majority of the
cases lulling into the hands of incompetent
persons, who not only fail to cure the diseases
but ruin the constitution, filling the system
with mercury, which, with the disease, has
tens the sufferer into a rapid Consumption.
But should the disease aud the treatment
not cause death speedily and the victim mar
ries, the disease is entailed upon the children,
who are born with feeble constitutions, and
the current of life corrupted by a virus which
betrays itself in Scrofula, Tetter, Ulcers, Erup
tions and other affections of the skin, Eyes.
Throat and Lungs, entailing upon them a brief
existence of suffering and consingning them
to an early grave.
SELF ABUSE is another formidable enemy
to health, lor nothing else in the dread cata
logue of human diseases causes so destructive
a drain upon the system, drawing its thousands
of victims through a few years of suffering
down to an untimely grave" It destroys the
Nervous system, rapidly wastes away tiie en
ergies of life, causes mental derangement,
prevents the proper development of the system,
disqualifies for marriage, society, business 1
and all earthly happiness, and leaves the suf
ferer wrecked in body and mind, predisposed
to consumption and a train of evils more to be
dreaded than death itself. With the fullest
contidence I assure the unfortunate victims of
Self-Abuse that a permanent and speedy cure
can be affected, and with the abandonment of
ruinous practices my patients can be restored
to robust, vigorous health.
The atllictcd are cautioned against the use
of Patent .Medicines, for there are so many
ingenious snares iu the columns of the public
prints to catch and rob the unwary sufferers
that millions have their constitutions ruined
by the vile compounds of quack doctors, or
the equally poisonous nostrums vended as
"Patent Medicines.'' I have carefully analyzed
many of the so called Patent Medicines and
tind that nearly all of them contain Corrosive
Sublimate, which is one of the strongest pre
parations of mercury and a deadly poison,
which instead of curing the disease disables
the system lor life.
Three-fourths of the patent nostrums now
in use are put up by unprincipled and ignorant

IMPORTANT DISCOVERY.
CONSUMPTION
AND ALL
DISEASES OP THE LUNGS AND THROAT
ABE POSITIVELY
CI RABLE BY INHALATION,
YYTHICH conveys the remedies to the cavi
▼ v ties in the lungs through the air passa
ges, and coming in direct contact with the
disease, neutralizes the tubercular matter, al
lays the cough, causes a free and easy expec
toration, heals the lungs, purities the blood,
imparts renewed vitality to the nervous system,
giving that tone and euergy so indispensable
lor the restoration of health. To be able to
state confidently that Consumption is curable
by inhalation, is to me a source of unalloyed
pleasure. It is as much uuder the coutrol of
medical treatment as any other formidable
disease ; uiuety out of every hundred cases
c-au be cured in the first stages, aud fifty per
cent, in the second; but in the third stage it
is impossible to save more than five per cent.,
for the Lungs are so cut up by the disease as
to bid defiance to medical skill. Even, how
ever, in the last stages, Inhalation affords ex
traordinary relief to the suffering attending
tins fearful scourge, which annually destroys
ninety-five thousand persons in the United
Sitates aloue ; and a correct calculation shows
that of the present population of the earth,
eighty millions are destined to fill the Con
sumptive's graves.
Truly the quiver of death has no arrow so
fatal as Consumption. In all ages it has been
the great enemy of life, for it spares neither
age nor sex, but sweeps off alike the brave,
the beautiful, the graceful and the gifted. By
the help of that Supreme Being from whom
cometh every good and perfect gift, 1 am en
ahhled to offer to the atliicted a permanent
and speedy cure in Consumption. The first
cause of tubercles is from impure blood, and
the immediate effect produced by their depo
sition in the lungs is to prevent the free ad
mission of air into the air cells, which causes
a weakened vitality through the entire system.
Then surely it is more rational to expect great
er good from medicines entering the cuvitiea
of the lungs than from those administered
through the stomach ; the patient will always
find the lungs free and the breathing easy, af
ter Inhaling remedies. Thus, Inhalation is a
local remedy, nevertheless it acts constitution
ally, and with more power and certaiuty than
remedies administered by the stomach. To
prove the powerful and diroct influence of this
this mode of administration, chloroform
inhaled will entirely destroy sensibility in a
few minutes, paralyzing the entire nervous
system, so that a limb may be amputated with
out the slightest pain; Inhaling the ordinary
burning gas will destroy life in a few hours.
The inhalation of ammonia will rouse the
system when fainting or apparently dead. Tho
odor of many of the medicines is perceptible
in the skin a few minutes after beiug inhaled,
and may be immediately detected in the blood.
A convincing proof of the constitutional effects
of inhalation, is the fact that sickness is al
ways produced by breathing foul air—is not
this positive evidence that proper remedies,
carefully prepared and judiciously adminis
tered through the lungs should produce tho
happiest results? During eighteen years'
practice, many thousands suffering from dis
eases of the lungs and throat, have been un
der my care, and I have effected many remark
able cures, even after the sufferers had been
pronounced in the last stages, which fully sat
isfies me that consumption is no longer a fatal
disease. My treatment of consumption is
original, and founded on long experience and
a thorough investigation. My perfect acquain
tance with the nature of tubercles, &c., ena
bles me to distinguish, readily, the various
fornij of disease that simulate consumption,
and apply the proper remedies, rarely beiug
mistaken even in a single case. This
iarity, in connection with certain pathological
and microscopic discoveries, enables me to re
lieve the lungs from the effects of contracted
chests, to enlarge the chest, purify the blood,
impart to it renewed vitality, giving energy
aud tone to the entire system.
Medicines with full directions seut to any
part of the United States and Canadas by pa
tients communicating their symptoms by letter.
But the cure would be more certain if the
patient should pay me a visit, which would
give me an opportunity to examine the lungs
and enable me to prescribe with much greater
certainty, and then the cure could be etivcted
without my seeing the patient again.
